Instructions

Instructions are for 2 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Whisk the eggs in a bowl. Mix in the cottage cheese. Add ground psyllium husk powder while stirring to incorporate it smoothly, without lumps. Let the mixture rest for 5 minutes until the batter has set.
  2. Place a frying pan over medium heat. Add a generous amount of butter and fry the batter like small pancakes for a couple of minutes on each side, until they are golden. Make two pancakes per serving.
  3. Assemble a sandwich with sliced ham and cheese between two of the warm pancakes. Add finely chopped onion on top.
  4. Wash and tear the lettuce. Mix oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper into a simple vinaigrette. Serve the Croque Monsieur warm beside lettuce dressed with the vinaigrette.

Tips

Put a fried egg on top and you'll have a Croque Madame! Equally fancy sounding, and equally delicious.
